2021 National Programs

 

Nordiq Canada will launch a series of support programs to help maintain national connectivity within the ski community that will hopefully contribute to: keeping skiers motivated, help us improve and enhance our performance as skiers and coaches, and provide some fun challenges to keep the spirit of competition alive.

National Workout Videos

Beginning the week of January 17th, NST coaches will be presenting a weekly workout including drills and cues for athletes and coaches.
These workouts will be a great build to the National ski challenge running in March.
We will be collecting videos and photos and drawing participation prizes from the submissions each week.

National Distance Challenge

Beginning the week of January 11th, we will provide a tracking system for skiers to report their cumulative distance on skis.
We will draw prizes for participants as well as have a grand prize for most kms skied by the end of February.

National Ski Challenge

One challenge per week during the first three weeks of March.
Nationals may have been cancelled, but that does not mean that we cannot create a distance event that threads the national ski community together.

Stay tuned for details beginning in early January regarding how to participate.
Nordiq Canada hopes to join up with all ages and levels of skiers through this program within the challenging and diverse circumstances we are all facing this winter

 

Team-Club Culture Grant Winner

 

The Nordiq Canada Women’s Committee is committed to improving the sport experience for females in cross country skiing. The Team-Club Culture Grant was generated to help support Clubs and Teams who are working hard to make cross country skiing a positive experience for female skiers and help promote a positive team culture, empowering and retaining female skiers in the competitive stream.

The winner of the Team Culture Grant was Carlton University Ravens Women’s Team for their focus on educating¬†skiers around fueling for high performance sport and generating a cookbook to be passed down to future¬†generations of student athletes.

The winner of the Club Culture Grant was Clarenville Nordic Ski Club for their Girls Ski Weekend which aims to bring together mothers and adult women in the Club with the younger skiers to bond and build a community of strong women of all ages who like cross country skiing, being active and competing.

Congratulations to our winners!
